Immerse yourself in luxury with this sumptuous cushion cover, from the Deborah Wace collection. The design features a visually captivating combination of pressed plant specimens and mono-prints of the endangered Giant Kelp, Macrocystis pyrifera. It’s the perfect addition to your home.
Commonly known as Giant Kelp, this plant can grow to 30 metres, creating dense giant kelp forest along the exposed coasts and deep water reefs of Tasmania. These giant forests support an incredible range of species and wildlife and are at dire risk of extinction from the rising sea temperatures along the coast of Tasmania.
“These are some of the tallest and largest aquatic plants on Earth. Tasmania’s endangered kelp forests are the tallest in the Southern Hemisphere and are world-renowned for their complex majesty.”
